ACA will host a virtual Ag Day event and events in Washington, DC and will bring college students to Washington “virtually” to deliver the message of Ag Day to the Hill. A core leadership team of college students will attend events in DC. Other events on March 21 include the Ag Day Proclamation Celebration and Taste of Ag Reception.
